As part of our ongoing commitment to providing technical assistance opportunities for our grantees, this year we are offering some exciting new options for 2020 in alignment with our recent strategic plan and vision for an equitable New Jersey through creative, engaged, sustainable communities.
To kick off our offerings, we are excited to join Rutgers Institute for Ethical Leadership in announcing the launch of The Nonprofit Professionals of Color Collective.
Stay tuned for more offerings this year.
The Nonprofit Professionals of Color Collective
Dodge and the Rutgers Institute for Ethical Leadership are collaborating on The Nonprofit Professionals of Color Collective, a monthly leadership workshop series, to provide a space where nonprofit professionals of color to engage in supportive community for growth, professional development, and meaningful peer relationships.
The Nonprofit Professionals of Color Collective is facilitated by Victoria Fernandez, acting program director of Rutgers Institute for Ethical Leadership, and Tyneisha Gibbs, founder and principal of 144th & Vine.
Over the course of nine months beginning January 2020, the series will likely take place at locations in Newark and central Jersey. While participants will find additional benefits from attending all the gatherings, the series is designed so people can attend one or all sessions and still benefit. Professionals of color are invited to join the Collective for the whole series, for topics of particular interest, or join the group only for the networking events.
